RV Park review: Tom Johnson Camping Center and Rally Park

Tom Johnson Camping Center and Rally Park

348 Resistoflex Rd.
Marion, North Carolina


nights stayed: 13
price per night: Campground $27 (Good Sam's rate)  Rally Park $25

We stayed at Tom Johnson Campground and Rally Park for an RV-Dreams Family Reunion.  We arrived early spending 5 days in the Campground and the remainder of our stay in the Rally park.

There are 2 separate parks in the compound. One is for Rallies and the other is a campground that seems to be primarily used by people doing business with Tom Johnson's Dealership sales and service departments.

The sites at the campground are adequate. There are concrete pads and full hookups. Tom Johnson's has courtesy Wi-Fi. Over the air TV is very limited.  There are no picnic tables here so bring your own. The camp store is associated with camping World.

There is a small Laundromat located within the Service center.

The sites at the Rally Park are level  grass with full hookups. We enjoyed a large open sided pavilion for group meals and spent each evening talking around a roaring fire in the enormous stone fire pit.   The Rally Park has restrooms and showers located near the Pavilion.

Tom Johnsons is adjacent to the Catawba River. There is an area within the park that is suitable for launching tubes or kayaks.

Marion is a small, historic town in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina about 30 miles east of Ashville.   The area is beautiful with outdoor opportunities for hiking, boating, and zip-lining.  We were able to experience food tours and art exhibits in nearby Black Mountain.

We would love to return for another Rally. 

Addendum: While staying at Tom Johnson's we experienced a minor electrical issue with our motor coach. The service team was friendly, courteous and quick to diagnose and fix the problem.
